Eggland’s Best Announces Goal of Selling Only Cage-Free Eggs by 2025

Eggland’s Best is committed to providing the most nutritious, best tasting, and freshest eggs possible to meet the needs of consumers.   In addition, humane animal care has always been one of the company’s highest priorities, and Eggland’s Best egg suppliers must adhere to very strict animal care requirements.  Eggland’s Best is the cage-free segment leader and is by far the largest cage-free brand in the U.S.

Eggland’s Best is setting a goal of working with our suppliers and customers to transition to 100 percent cage-free eggs by 2025.  We will work closely with our suppliers to make this change in a way that ensures the great taste, nutrition, and freshness that consumers love and expect from Eggland’s Best eggs.  We will not compromise food safety or animal welfare in working toward this goal.

For years, Eggland’s Best has been at the forefront of egg industry best practices in a number of areas, including food safety, bird health, animal welfare, and 3rd party audit requirements.  The company is extremely committed to the health and welfare of the hens that provide Eggland’s Best eggs.  We look forward to continuing our leadership in improving all aspects of cage-free egg production and animal welfare.

Compared to regular eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, five times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and three times more vitamin B12.  Eggland’s Best’s impressive nutritional value is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.  In addition, a recent independent study showed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
